2000 GTEX skyline turbo on ebay

Recommended Posts

This is the one that started it all with the L20A motor. It's a pitty that the turbo was removed because one of the hardest things to get is the original factory Oil Line and Sump for a suitable turbo conversion on a L24/28 system. There seems to be an endless supply of Cam covers and exhaust manifolds from the US ZX280 Turbo, but try and get the oil tap & lines.

The strage thing about these setups it that there is no blow off valve. Back when I had my L28RET (home made) if you closed the trottle at over 4000 RPM, then the pipe from the turbo to the throttle used to blow off old school style. After a quick roadside replacement, away you went.

This is rarer than the R30 Paul Newman Edition, this is the special Plastichrome limited-run, or St Vincent De PAUL Edition :)

Wait a minute Fellas, It must be slow in Toora this week, we have a price drop. Instead of starting at $5K with a buy now of $10K, we now have $1K and $5K respectively.

If only it was a manual with 4 wheel disc brakes.

But back to the thread at hand.

Jim, have you ever heard of a 2000 GTEX? I thought the 1st turbos came out in the R30 body, Not the C210. There was a late C210 in 1980 that had EFI, but I cannot remember what litreage. For some reason, I'm thinking 3.0, but that cannot be right. You could tell the difference by the front headslights as they were large square units. And the rears were different too.

Still, no Turbo.
